ABSTRACT

Food Insufficiency During the Coronavirus Response   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The coronavirus pandemic has created widespread economic disruption, exacerbating American household food insufficiency. Food insufficiency means that households are unable to meet their basic needs and is associated with negative health consequences for individuals of all ages. Figure 1 shows trends in household food insufficiency (April 23 to July 14, 2020) for the U.S., New York State, and the NYC metropolitan area using data from the U.S. Census Bureau Household Pulse Survey. Nationally, approximately 10.4% of households reported sometimes or often not having enough food to eat over the 11-week period. The lowest level of food insufficiency, 9.7%, was reported in the week ending June 23."
